Diploma Information

Latin Honors for Undergraduate Students

In the undergraduate colleges or schools, a degree will be granted with highest honors (summa cum laude) if the student’s grade point average ranks among the top 5.000 percent of those students graduating from the student’s college or school; for a student whose grade point average ranks among the top 15.000 percent of the student’s college or school, a degree will be granted with high honors (magna cum laude); for a student whose grade point average ranks among the top 30.000 percent of the student’s college or school, a degree will be granted with honors (cum laude). A student who meets the requirements of more than one category of honors will be awarded only the highest honor for which that student qualifies. View the Latin Honors for the current semester.

Earning a Notre Dame diploma is a great honor not only to the holder, but also to the wider University community.  Congratulations on your accomplishment! All students who have met their current obligations to the institution and have no account holds are eligible to receive their diploma at Commencement.
